Dear Glasses Wearer,


Have you ever been alone in your kitchen late at night? It’s cozy and quiet and there is not a sound. But then suddenly the fridge stops and you realise that you hadn’t noticed the noise. Now however it’s even quieter and you realise how lovely real silence is. But then after a while the fridge restarts. Its return is noisy and intrusive, disturbing the silence you had been enjoying.

Well, can you imagine the same experience but this time instead of the fridge stopping its your need for glasses that stops!

Suddenly everything is clearer and your eyes are normal all of the time. There is no need to find your glasses or put in your contacts, you vision is there, clear for you 24-hours a day. Think of the freedom that you could then enjoy. Then imagine that one day you wake up and your dependence on glasses has returned! Imagine how distressing and inconveniencing such a thing would be. That period of freedom from glasses illustrated to you what a handicap needing them is. You’re back to the daily chore of putting in your lenses, taking them out, ordering new ones, remembering to take them on holiday- all the burden and handicap revisited for the rest of your life. Today’s laser surgery is safer than ever and is in fact at least as safe and possibly even safer than wearing contact lenses. You could be made free from glasses today with femto laser and this freedom could last for ever.

I want you to imagine for a moment that you’ve invented a permanent cure for a disease. Let’s say you discovered a cure for Parkinson’s that was safe and effective in all cases. Then imagine you found someone suffering from the disease who hadn’t heard of your cure. You watch them struggling with the disease and trying to live with it. I’m sure you would want to rush over to them to tell them about your cure and how it would liberate them from the fetters of the disease.

So let me encourage you to look closely at what is now possible with modern laser technologies. Don’t rely on what you’ve heard before because that is already completely out of date. The precision of femto lasers is astonishing, the safety is unparalleled and the long-term results are stable.
